ive got to do a short article for physics (its due in on tuesday, and ive left it typically last minute) on 'a topic of current interest in physics'. the article isnt going to take me long to do, i just cant think of anything to write it on

so Pit, any ideas?

Perpetual motion through the application of portals.

waves along a string, just done a whole topic about it and you can go into a suprising amount of detail. but personaly id go with Blayney's idea - portals kick ass

Impress your prof/teacher with a good essay about the god particle, what it is, how we are attempting to find it and how close researchers have gotten to it.

Look into Quantum Physics. Specifically storing data within the spin of an electron.

Edit: Actually i don't know if that falls under Quantum. It may be Particle.
It kinda borders both.

It's called Spintronics Really imaginitive name. I know Ohio state and Leeds University in the UK are working on it atm.

im currently at Leeds, so if i did that and got anything wrong it may be a bit obvious, and i may have to cite articles written by my professors as sources :P

Finding the Higgs Boson is the largest interest in physics atm.

I'd suggest not doing any particles stuff, it's all massively speculative - we do a whole module on it in IB and it's just like "there may be strings, there may not.", but maybe I'm just too grounded in the observable (being a chemist)

Something about energy or nuclear reactors would be cool.. I did a load of stuff about the composition of nuclear control rods which was pretty interesting

Ah right, i didn't know you were at Leeds. I'm hoping to go there next year for Physics, that's how I heard about this. Prof Oudamaijer mentioned it at the interview.

go the controversial route and do timeless physics and machian dynamics

you do theoretical physics in ib?

I wish i had that option. I had a year of Biology SL and that was it. goddamnit.

art HL was pretty fun though. and good luck on your tests!

I had a dream about your avatar once, so yes of course.
